Oberon Old Methodist
On an elevated sloping site with an attractive view over the surrounding countryside, the stones in this historic burial ground date back to 1859 and bear the names of many of the Oberon district pioneers. The site is still in use as a Uniting Church cemetery with one burial as recently as 2004. Maintained by the same gentleman who cares for the Mutton Falls Cemetery, the grounds are in excellent condition and are a credit to his meticulous care. There is no sign of vandalism and the graves are free of broken glass.
Jean and I visited the cemetery on 4 February 2005 and made digital images and notes of every visible inscription. In compiling this list, we also consulted the NSW index of births, deaths and marriages to help determine some names and dates and for additional information.
The cemetery is located 1.9km from the Oberon Shire Offices in the centre of town. Head north-east towards Lithgow and, about 200m past the Big Trout Motor Inn, the cemetery will be seen on the hill on the left hand side of the road. It is signposted "Original Methodist Cemetery".
